Down syndrome — employment


Many people with Down syndrome are perfectly capable of getting a job or even owning their own businesses. Yesterday, we heard from my friend Alex who has had a job for a long time and owns his own business. I have several friends with Down syndrome here in Alaska who have had jobs around town for a long time. And I’ve seen several YouTube videos about people with Down syndrome who own their own businesses and even hire other people who have Down syndrome or other disabilities. One difference that you might encounter from an employee who has Down syndrome is that they might need support staff or a parent to help them understand their instructions and follow through with their instructions. Yesterday, we heard from Karen, Alex’s mom. She said that Alex is the artist. She runs the business. That’s a good setup. Seth, do you want to go to work? What work? I didn’t order any work!
